Stop Molly Coddling Workers

Casey Mulligan says--wait for it--that the reason that unemployment is the 7% it is right now rather than the 4.4% it was two years ago because workers today face "financial incentives that encourage them not to work":
Are Employers Unwilling to Hire, or Are Some Workers Unwilling to Work?: Employment has been falling over the past year... if total hours worked had continued the upward trend they had been on in the years before the recession, they would be 4.7 percent higher than they are now.... [Today s]ome employees face financial incentives that encourage them not to work.... [T]he decreased employment is explained more by reductions in the supply of labor (the willingness of people to work) and less by the demand for labor (the number of workers that employers need to hire)...
If the New York Times has a future, it is as a trusted intermediary. This does not help.
[ cf Oh Noes!! ]
Is it just me, but that we need to do something about all of these folks who are just not willing to work???

Clearly these folks need to learn about the importance of Personal Responsiblity!!!

Clearly ONLY by having a Permenante Capital Gains tax cut can we stop these Hideous and HEINOUS form of Gay HomoZeXual Marriage AgendanistaIsms!!!

So when people tell you that they lost a job tell them that they have to stop being work shy and get right back out there and become a responsible person with a Firm comittment to Permenante Capital Gains tax cuts!!! Or they will make the Unborn Baby UBU cry...
